Wycombe manager Gareth Ainsworth had mixed emotions at the final whistle after seeing his Wanderers let slip a two goal lead in their 2-2 draw with Gillingham at the Priestfield Stadium.

First half goals from Adam El-Abd and Nathan Tyson looked to be setting the Blues on their way to another superb win.

However, chances to wrap up the game were wasted and the Gills fought back with goals from Tom Eaves and Josh Parker to grab a point they never looked like getting.

Ainsworth said: "The story of the game is I would have taken a point before the match as this is a tough place to come for a lot of teams and they are in form.

"However, at half-time, I wasn't going to settle for a point at all. I thought we were well worth the three points.

"We had the lion's share of the chances and we had more shots on target than them and I thought we were devastating in the first half with some of our forward play and we deserved our two goals.

"Second half, I have to give credit to Gillingham and they did well to come back into the game and they showed good heart.

"However, it was a couple of sloppy mistakes from us and I am disappointed with that. The first goal looked offside which is hugely disappointing but you get that against you sometimes.

"We have to roll our sleeves up and go again next week. Somebody has just said in my dressing room that would be a great point if we can win next week against Wimbledon and that is a true statement."

Wycombe had countless chances to kill off the game but Gillingham were indebted to goalkeeper Tomas Holy for keeping them in the game.

Ainsworth added: "Fred Onyedinma was through one-on-one in the second half and their keeper pulled off a fantastic save and he pulled off a superb save from Randell Williams at the end of the game too.

"He was the busier keeper and he made some good saves and they took the two chances we gifted them.

"A point at Gillingham isn't such a bad point and overall I am pleased we didn't lose the game and I am proud of the group, who were told they didn't have enough fight to stay up this season."
